Contact: (336) 334-4822 ext. 50361

The two-year program listed below is designed to meet the requirements for an Associate of Fine Arts in Theatre transfer degree from GTCC and prepare a student for obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in Theater/Drama at University of North Carolina at Greensboro, North Carolina A&T State University, Appalachian State University, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, or Guilford College.

However, students from GTCC seeking a baccalaureate degree may also transfer to other institutions. These institutions may require different courses within the various areas of General Education. Some schools also require a second concentration, and General Education hours may be used towards that goal in the future as well. Students interested in transferring to a four-year college or university after GTCC should consult with the institution they will be attending, their faculty advisor, and/or the GTCC Student Success Center.

Upon successful completion of this degree, graduates will be able to:

  • Demonstrate strategies to acquire new information in the practice of theatre and theatre history.
  • Analyze relevant issues in theatre and theatre history.
  • Demonstrate critical thinking through the use of foundational skills in theatre.
  • Take part in a staged production in a technical or design role.
